[FIXED] Sims sit somewhere else or stand instead of eating at table

[ Edited ]
★ Guide

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? n/a
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have your sim(s) make some food and eat it and have a table with dining chairs and a couch.
What happens when the bug occurs? Sims will either eat their food either on the couch or standing up, will rarely sit at the table.
What do you expect to see? Sims to go directly to the table when eating food.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

This is really bugging me because it breaks story lines I create and they look so annoying when they stand and eat their food to me.

Sims will now use the dining table to eat again. Sometimes if I’m in a hurry, I grab a meal on the go and don’t sit down to eat, but sometimes you need to sit down and enjoy a nice meal, you know?


Fixed in Patch 1.67.45/ 1.32

I have this happen to me all the time. It is the most annoying thing when I'm trying to have a dinner party and everyone is standing or someone goes upstairs and eats at the computer desk.

all the time. sometimes they'll eat at the breakfast bar counters. but since the babies turned to toddlers they all stand around the couch usually watching Tv, or some will go and sit on the toddler beds. very annoying.

It's especially annoying when they mac out in front of the fridge when two other sims are waiting to get something to eat and can't because their route is blocked.

 

The worst offenders are the Landgraab and Goth families. Gallagher Newson (from my gallery) is also particularly annoying about blocking others from using the refrigerator.

 

No mods/CC.
